Post From: Future planned OS platforms for SC

so I see no trolling here on my side as i see no solution on yours.

Ganz, I've enjoyed your previous posts, and have been trying to suggest solutions. :-) I started this thread and have suggested Linux, QT, wxWidgets, SFML, CEGUI, ImGui, MyGui, and nim in various posts. The new Nim language (has been around for 8 years) can compile to C, C++, Objective C, and JavaScript, so could help SC target mobile, web, and cloud in the future.

There are in-progress nim wrappers for wxWidgets and Vulkan:

https://github.com/nimious/vulkan

I'd love to see SC rewritten in nim, and ACSIL use it. Nim is cross-platform, high-level, and efficient, and is a good replacement for C++. Until then, I'm learning enough to write my own private platform that uses nim, wxWidgets, and CSFML/SDL. Time will tell what happens. I'm enjoying SC for now, but am curious about the future. As my platform progresses, I'll just need a quality data feed. For now, I'm getting data+execution from SC.
